Is Magnus Carlsen sick of chess? Carlsen has been the world classical chess champion continuously since 2013. However, that will soon change. The chess player has just shared information that shocked the whole world.
Magnus Carlsen. Chess genius
Magnus Carlsen is a Norwegian chess player who has been the undisputed genius of the board since 2011. He has been a grandmaster since 2004. In 2011, he took the lead in the world ranking, which he maintains to this day. This means that he has been number 1 in chess for 12 years. He has also been the world champion in classical chess for ten years.
Carlsen won’t touch chess anymore?!
The media, who had the opportunity to talk to Mangus Carlsen after the tournament in Wijk aan Zee in the Netherlands, which ended last Sunday, report that the chess player has announced a temporary cessation of classical chess because he finds it boring. Carlsen did not specify how long his break from classical chess will last, but he will continue to compete in rapid and dynamic chess.
Carlsen made it clear to the world last year that classical chess had lost his interest when he withdrew from the final match of the world championship, which will take place from April 7 to May 1, in July.
